The Indiana Pacers continued marching through April to a winning cadence as they beat the Milwaukee Bucks on Saturday night to move to 8-1 for the month.

In a tight game that saw the Bucks make a fourth quarter run to close withing one point with seven minutes to go, the Pacers tightened things up at the defensive end holding the Bucks to just three points, a too-little-too-late three-pointer by Monta Eliis, over the final three minutes of the game. Then Roy Hibbert closed out the W by making all six of his free throws to keep the Bucks down as the time ran off. Little things come up big again.
